RSM Dahman supports Chief Audit Executives Leadership Forum

RSM Dahman, the independent UAE member firm of RSM International, the world’s seventh largest leading audit, tax and advisory networks, joined hands with the Open Thinking Academy to bring yet another outstanding event for audit executives in the UAE at the Amwaj Rotana on Thursday.

Open Thinking Academy invited four notable speakers for the event which included Mr. Sridhar Ramamoorti who has chaired research on the topic of strategic relationship of Chief Audit Executives (CAE) with various stakeholders.

His talk focused on how CAEs can enhance their relationships within an organisation to make sure their comments are heard and acted upon. Sridhar has also co-authored a book by the same title.

The second speaker was Toby J.F. Bishop who has co-authored the book ‘Corporate Resiliency: Managing the Growing risk of Fraud and Corruption’. Toby provided practical insights into fraud fighting and highlighted some traps that auditors should avoid in their fight against fraud.

Iyad Mourtada, managing director of the Open Thinking Academy, the organiser of the event and also one of the presenters re-emphasized the common challenges CAEs face in their roles.

Rakesh Pardasani, Partner at RSM Dahman said “We are glad to be supporting the Open Thinking Academy with this unique event. We understand the challenges CAEs face and during our role as Internal Auditors in organisations, quite a few times, we face the same situations. The event has been an interesting mix of learning as well as a great opportunity meeting and knowing more about CAEs in industry and their trials.”

RSM Dahman was established in 1996 and now provides the full range of audit, advisory and accounting services from its three offices across the UAE which include Dubai, Abu Dhabi and Hamriyah Free Zone.
